I’m finally traveling again! Tomorrow I’m flying to Michigan with my grandma, where I’ll attend my cousin’s wedding and then road trip home with my brother and cousin.
“And you’ll…just…leave your grandma in Michigan?” asked my friend Matt when I told him this today.
“No, she’s flying home with my parents, who left today, so they’d have time to hang out with my grandpa, my other grandpa, no relation to my grandma, unless it counts as a ‘relation’ if your children are married to each other…”
I quickly realized the impossibility of succinctly explaining our travel plans. Let’s just say that most of my family will end up in Michigan one way or another, and like the Wise Men, most of us are returning home another way.
Grandma will not be stranded in Michigan. (Lord willing).
I reached 1,000 subscribers! Nifty. Now, one of you dear readers should go like my Facebook page because I currently have 299 “likes” and 300 is a much nicer number.
I appreciated your insight on my random post about money and blogging. I may re-institute ads someday, but for now my blog will remain free of them, as well as sponsorships and subscriptions and whatever the cool kids do these days to earn money through blogging. I’ll continue to view my blog as a gift to my readers, as well as (maybe someday) a platform to promote my books (which I shall write abundantly in the future, surely) and a place to gain writing practice.
However, I’m toying with the idea of hiding my ancient archives from the public and compiling the best bits to sell as (cheap) e-books. So if you’re feeling stalker-ish and want to know what random things Emily was mulling over in 2011, now is the time to get clicking.
I think I’ll begin another section with an exclamation point! Just, you know, because I can.
I’m graduating on June 17. For seven years of my life I have invested nearly all my resources into my own education. I have lots of thoughts about this. (I’d better–how ironic would it be if I invested in education and had no thoughts to show for it?) I haven’t formed them into blog posts. Yet.
My open house is on June 18, from 3pm-5pm, at my house. If you are reading this, consider yourself invited. (At some point I will send out real invitations, with pictures of my face and stuff.)
I may post updates as I travel. I may not. So long, for now.
